Fedora Atomic 25 how to change console keyboard language ?

asked 2017-01-11 08:47:02 +0000

I have installed Atomic 25 on Virtualbox according to the Quickstart Guide and I have logged in to the console. How can I switch now keyboard layout to German ? None of the methods I googled did work. Is there a special approach needed for Atomic ?

Do these steps help? Otherwise try to install system-config-keyboard via dnf install system-config-keyboard.

I had looked for the typical commands like loadkeys, system-config-keyboard, dpkg-reconfigure, console-data. Nothing there.
